Nigerian music lovers on Twitter have aired their opinions as regards why Burna Boy was not disqualified in the 2022 Headies Award after Portable was disqualified.


The conversation sprung after popular journalist Joey Akan called out the headies academy for choosing to disqualify Portable because he is a smaller artist.

According to the decorated music journalist, the headies academy are supposed to reward artistic excellence and not serve as a moral tool to censor their behaviours.

Recall that Burna Boy was in the news recently after his security aide allegedly shot people in the club, an investigation that the Nigerian police also promised to investigate.

Joey Akan took a stance on that point, slamming the headies academy for disqualifying Portable and leaving Burna Boy due to what he regarded as a small vs big artist situation.

The tweets have triggered a full-blown conversation on Twitter, as different users air their opinions on several topics revolving around Burna Boy, Portable, and the headies.
